NCWQ Annual Report 2022-2023

2022 - 2023 NCWQ Annual Report

"The embrace of technology led to a rejuvenation of the NCWQ committee membership, attracting women still active in the workforce. This shift resulted in an increase in membership, with affiliate numbers rising from 35 in 2019 to 38 in 2023 and associate membership growing from 45 to 86 during the same period." - NCWQ President

2021 - 2022 NCWQ Annual Report

"2022 marked 120 years since Australian women gained the right to vote in federal elections, following the passage of the Commonwealth Franchise Act 1902 (Franchise Act). The Act extended the franchise to ‘persons not under twenty-one years of age whether male or female, married or unmarried’. The Act also gave women the right to stand as candidates in federal elections. With its passage, Australia became the first country in the world to give most women both the right to vote and the right to run for parliament." - NCWQ President

2020 - 2021 NCWQ Annual Report

"Life in Australia over the past 12 months has continued to be greatly affected by COVID-19. Controversy surrounding lockdowns, state border closures, and the different types and availability of vaccines have dominated our national narrative. In addition, COVID-19 induced isolation, economic loss and uncertainty have impacted negatively on everyone, especially our women and children." NCWQ President
